Watch: Paxman drops the C-bomb
Newsnight presenter becomes the latest BBC figure to utter the “C-word” live on air.
Jeremy Paxman has become the latest BBC presenter to attempt to smash the taboo around the use of the "C-word".
Introducing a Newsnight feature on UK Uncut, Paxman said: "Supposing, though, some of the people who ought to be paying taxes so the cunts, cuts aren't so bad aren't actually doing so."
But with the Newsnight presenter recently railing against cuts to the BBC World Service, perhaps it's no surprise that such intemperate language came to mind.
